    This ended up being a big table runner, 16 x 45. I hope you all like it. It is far from perfect but cute, I think.

    I love it and the colors. I tried making one similar but small circles. I think that was my problem. Didn't look right. You must have done like a 8" circle??? Mine was 4". Thanks for the picture. Happy Mother's day to all.

    The circles are a little over 9 1/2 inches before sewing together. Then you have to draw rectangles on the inside and make a slit in one of the wings that later will be hidden under the folded flap. Then spray baste rectangles of batting and "glue" them to one of the circles taking the slit into account. Yes, I could imagine that 4 inch circles would be challening. this was a once in a life time for me. LOL

    That runner is spectacular! I've never seen circles like that before. Does it have a name? You've well and truly nailed the challenge! Love it!!!!

    Anna, a beautiful curved runner. Did you find it difficult? I have a lot of 10.5" sqs waiting to start on this scrap buster. My pattern is from "Charlie" Bement, American Quilter Magazine, 2006, Got Scraps . She does many amazing things with this one pattern. The back of the quilts are as amazing as the front.

    Love what you did with this block.

    Tube I looked at pictures and ideas from several different sources. It did not come out as perfect as I hoped. At the end I did my own thing so that might be the issue. I am glad I got to make a table runner first because a full quilt would have been too much for me.

    m-fay I also think that either table runner would be great. Both are beauties!

    Went to my LQS today to see about finding something that is hexagon or curved and I found apple core what do you all think about that, I was thinking of doing half hexagon but now not for sure but it will be patriotic since someone will be receiving In July.

    Sounds terrific. It has lots of curves after all. In one of the first swaps I did an apple core. I love patriotic. Can't wait to see it.

    Applecore is one I haven't tried yet. I don't know why because I love it. Can't wait to see yours.

    Smile

    I knew I had made an apple core wall hanging before and swapped it out on this board in the wall hanging swap 2016. Here is a picture of it. I am not sure I remember who got it.
